17th Annual Fitzgerald Benefit Dinner
Join us at the beautiful Grace restaurant in Portland to support Maine's longest-standing gun violence prevention organization. The award is named for the late Buzz Fitzgerald, who co-founded the Maine Gun Safety Coalition with Congresswoman Chellie Pingree and attorney William Harwood following the Columbine High School Massacre in 1999. The Fitzgerald dinner supports our legislative initiatives, education programs, and the Free Trigger Locks program.
The annual benefit dinner recognizes public figures who help advance our mission of improving gun laws in Maine. Past honorees include US Senator Susan Collins, Portland Mayor Ethan Strimling, Rep. Mark Dion, and Assistant U.S. Attorney Margaret Groban.
Vote Yes on Question 3 on November 8!
Maine Gun Safety Coalition is responsible for successfully passing background checks legislation in the House and Senate in June 2013, prior to being vetoed by Governor LePage.
We are currently championing Question 3, a statewide referendum closing the private sale loophole on the November 2016 ballot. The unrestricted sale of guns in Maine increases the risk of homicide, domestic violence deaths, suicides, and law enforcement injuries. Click here for additional information.
